Your machine is telling you it cannot read the new cartridge for some reason. Try running an allignment scan form the printers management area.

Black ink keeps pushing out of cartridge


The problem is probably an ink build up on the black print head wiper on the service station. The wiper is supposed to clean the head but over time the ink builds up and evaporates and turns to tar. The wiper then fouls the head instead of cleaning it. Remove the left end cover and clean the service station wipers. Manual can be downloaded from here: www.lpscomputer.com/ec/manuals.htm

Hi, please tell me how to install a new black ink cartridge into my epsonstylus D78 printer


Open the cover. Press the Ink/maint button (triangle shape on button) this moves the carriage to indicate empty cartridge. keep pressing until carriage moves to the ink replacement position. Open ink cartridge cover and remove the cart. Ensure you remove the yellow tape on new cart' before installing and be careful not to touch the chip on the cart'. Push new cart' in until it clicks. Close lid (ensure clicks down), close printer cover and press ink button again.

Please take a moment to rate this solution, thanks.

Lexmark X5320 won't print acts like it's printing but paper is blamk, also tells me right ink is wrong( it is not)


Hello there,

The most common cause for printing blank pages is (1) Failure to remove the protective tape from the bottom of the cartridge. Even if you have removed the tape, there might be some residual tape left at the bottom of the cartridge. I would suggest you check out for this yellow or/and transparent blue tape at the bottom.Please remove it, if present. (2) If there is no tape left behind, then the next option is to clean the cartridge nozzles. I would suggest you go to Lexmark control program or Lexmark Solution Center and run the clean nozzle test. You should see solid dark lines on the print out. Repeat the process 2-3 times till you get a good output. (3) If all the above steps fails, don't worry.. we have one last thing to try... Remove the carts from the printer.. take a warm damp paper towel Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are touching the towel, and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds. The nozzles are where the ink comes out of the cartridge. Repeat this process atleast two times and then put the carts back to the printer after 1 min (we need to allow the cart contacts to dry). Now you can install the cart to the printer and try printing. If you still have a problem with the cart, then I would suggest you try another cart as there should be something wrong with the cart that you have right now.

Merry Christmas!

Just want to SCAN, with image going to computer


machine always refuses ANY function if a color is empty.

You can cheat the machine by sticking some thin black adhesive tape around the cart nose (looking from above onto the cartholder within the printer it is the right hand side of the cart).

This signals the machine a full cart.

MFC 210C Ink Problems


Steve,

did you watch the display after replacing the cart?
Very often the machine asks if you have changed the cart and demands an answer (1 for yes).

You can try to do an update of the firmware, too. Go to www.brother.com , choose your country and then your machine. Download a small update tool and run it.

If it aint getting better:
Do unplug from power outlet (even though you have done already) wait 10 Min. leave scanner cover open and take all carts out. Plugin to power again and leave scanner open. Wait uintil machine gives a warning signal. Reinsert carts and close cover: now watch the display and give always the answer YES(1).

My MFC-210C always says replace ink.


Try this: Unplug machine from power. Wait 5 min.  Open scanner cover and take the carts out of the holder. Close cover. Plug machine to power. Machine will cycle and demands the carts. Use all NEW carts: Insert carts as demanded and answer question shown on display.

Always print until machine STOPPS printing because of EMPTY cart. Change cart then and machine will print the rest of job!
Plz, never change carts when it says NEAR EMPTY: This will cause a lot of trouble ;-)

Trying to print in black with no yellow ink


The black tape has to be places around the "nose" of the cart. If you look at the small front side of the cart, you can see a black platic flag. This flag signals the inklevel to the printer. Stick the tape around the flag so that it is covered in total. B/W only printing: If you only want to print/copy/fax in b/w choose the solution above and drill a simple small 1-2mm hole into the C/Y/M carts (e.g. into the brandname "brother" on top or the handle). The color ones will run dry, but the tape signals "full". After the color ones are down, air will be in the capillarysystem and part of the printhead, but black will work without probs (This will be the only cart to change when its empty!) :-) You can use the START MONO function for copy. You have to change the printerdriver settings to plain paper (for all type of paper!) and greyscale to print without any probs! Enjoy!
